Why coaching instead of teaching?

When attending school we learn various subjects such as mathematics, grammar, history etc. After having passed the tests at school we are busy in our jobs as waiter, accountant, journalist etc. Our motivation to apply in our jobs as exactly as possible, what we have learned at school is always 100%.

  1. Close your windows on the motorway Personally, I like having my windows down all the time for fresh air. But if you’re driving at high speeds — 70mph on the motorway, say — having windows open increases drag, which cuts your fuel economy.

When we go to school we learn many different subjects such as maths, English Language and Literature, Geography and History, to name but a few.

We are motivated to apply 100% of what we have learned at school in our jobs, as precisely as possible. Nobody would ever attempt to change the maths or grammatical rules and then invent ...

“Thank you so much – I couldn’t have done it without you!”

“I’ll definitely be in touch about a motorway lesson.”

 

MOTORWAYS – New Drivers, Be Prepared

 

I must have heard these two comments hundreds of times during my Instructing career – especially the first comment.

Unfortunately, no matter how well intentioned the second comment may be, very few follow up with a telephone call or text, to discuss motorway lessons.

Young Drivers’ Insurance Doesn’t have to be Expensive

Posted by:

Young Drivers’ Insurance Doesn’t have to be Expensive.  Passing the Driving Test must surely be one of the great high spots in a person’s life experience but often, there follows a huge anti-climax when it comes to buying that first car and getting it on the road.

The initial purchase cost is, in itself, a major headache but Insurance fees can be crippling for the new teenage driver.
